We are http://www.abusando.org (Brazilian Association of IP Users and Domain Owners) and WE NEED your HELP!
As long time Internet users representing and defending the interest of domain leasing owners we're deeply concerned about the direction that Brazil is handling ccTLD registration.
As ccTLD control was transferred away from the United States our greatest concern about the US ceding control in particular to the Brazilian government’s CGI (Comite Gestor da Internet) who is not being accountable to disastrous results down the road for everyone other than the favored few which remain in control in that case obviously CGI making about 15 million dollars a year in ccTLD registration.
In this regard, the current ICANN proposal for Brazil’s ccTLD handling leaves far too much to the imagination, both in terms of how much authority the Brazilian Internet using public is having and in terms of whether the inner working of CGI will be open for public inspection, review, and criticism when signs of corruption, censorship and abuse is becoming greater and its members took possession of the ccTLD registry system.
